Darktopia is a platform game about a woman trying to escape from an ancient ruin populated by undead creatures. You will play as Lorraine. Your expedition team was tasked to acquire the infamous Idol of Tavor from an ancient ruin deep in the Tavor jungle. It was an ordinary expedition until the ruin's denizens who guarded the Idol started to attack. You managed to survive the attack but got badly injured. You have to recover your strength and find a way to escape the cursed ruin. But beware, such task wont be easily accomplished!

Explore the vast structure, collect items to gain new abilities, kill monsters, acquire the infamous Idol of Tavor, and find a way to escape.

Great game. I appreciate all the effort that went into making such an awesome adventure. The challenges weren't impossible (except maybe the end battle....) I was really happy to have the map / items collected feature . All the key controls were fine for me, so I did not alter them a bit.
I played through twice, but did not complete the game. I cheated and watched a walkthrough video and got bummed by the ending. What was that ending? Dark. Cruel reality. But really, BRAVO for this interesting metroidvania game. Thank you! :)

I have just found out in order to beat the ghost enemies, you can use an explosive demon enemy's death explosion to kill them. Also, great game.

Good game aside from the immortal ghost things. They caused some issues with difficulty and game balance

Exactly what MitchellProductions said. Once you get a key and open a door, the screen shakes as the door lifts and then, ... the screen just never stops shaking and you can never move or anything. Hugely game-breaking bug! Does this only work on Chrome or something? (I'm using Firefox)

Good game, but there's a problem: When I unlock the first gate, it gets stuck trying to "open", and I can't move the player at all nor do anything.
